– There is quite a lot generally written, for those people listening, that follow in the space around the potential lack of diversity within venture capital and within startups at female founder, female CEO, you know, female investor. Have you seen any? What’s your view, generally, on that whole area?
– I mean, being a younger female investor in London, as an industry, I think we need to do better. It’s a challenge in tech. It’s a challenge in finance. Things are getting better. There are amazing incentives, you know, initiatives of getting women in tech and women into VC and, you know, these great, great initiatives, great projects to help and change the status quo, but I do believe that, in a small way, we are helping to create the future of us as a society and the society is diverse. – [Steve] Yeah. – And so the more people in the decision making power that can really help and drive these conversations and look at these problems from different angles and provide different points of view, based on their personal experience, based on the background, based on many different things altogether, I think that’s what venture capital, at the end of the day, it’s a simple business. It’s about the quality of your decision making, right? It’s the bets that we place and so the more, I think, diversity we bring into that, the better. I think we all do actually as a collective.
